editor’s note

MOVING INTO A completely bare home—empty rooms, blank walls—presents a world of possibilities. It’s also a little terrifying. I remember going on a walk-through of the first home my husband and I closed on together and thinking, “Where do we start? What furniture goes where, which paint colors, and how will we pull it together so it doesn’t look like a jumble?” I felt some of that while planning the first-ever Real Simple Home—which you can tour on page 100. We wanted to bring to life all our tips for making a stylish, well-organized home. Once again I was walking through a blank space, trying to imagine what comes next. Yet the superteam here at Real Simple, particularly our ever-upbeat home editor, Stephanie Sisco, saw the beautiful potential in the emptiness.…

what good habit do you wish you’d started earlier?

Learning to accept and love myself for who I am. And not biting my nails! KATI BOURQUE, NORTH ANDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS Wearing sunscreen. It wasn’t until I reached my late 30s that I became militant about it. Now, in my 50s, I am seeing the results of my late start! KATHERINE SNOW, DOVER, NEW HAMPSHIRE Keeping a log in my car of mileage and any repairs and new parts. It saves a good deal of guesswork during visits to the shop and makes your life (and your mechanic’s life) easier. MARIA ISABEL BONILLA, BILLINGS, MONTANA Tackling whatever is stressing me out the most in that moment.

the short list

Creepy mystery Ivy House is a place of refuge for the large Hennessy family. So after Toby is violently beaten, he returns there to heal and care for his dying uncle. When a skull is found on the property, the police begin to unearth the darker truth. Tana French’s The Witch Elm is a chilling mystery about the unreliability of memory. Fiery history On April 29, 1986, the Los Angeles Central Library—and some 400,000 books—burned to the ground. In The Library Book, journalist Susan Orlean explores that case and other library fires and shows readers what history loses when books, and the safe spaces that house them, are targets. Great for book club Unsheltered, the new novel from Barbara Kingsolver, introduces us to Willa Knox, who is confronting life’s unpredictability. After losing her job, she…
